This episode of "The Ruggles" is entitled "Christmas Eve"; it's from December, 1949.

As I write this (2011), Margaret Kerry (who plays older daughter Sharon) still makes appearances at Disney events; she was the model for Tinkerbell in the Disney version of "Peter Pan" (1953).

We watched this show on our Motorola 9inch tv, yes, with the magnifying bubble in front of it. I always like Charlie Ruggles in anything I saw him in, and this show was a very nice family show. NOT boring, but interesting, and fun.

This was far better than any sitcom that has been on television in the last 35 years it took me back to a more moral time when the televison stations abided by The Television Seal Of Good Practice. A great show

Nice "slice of life" sitcom/drama here, pretty amusing, with no annoying laugh-track.


Next time I meet Goku, I'll show him this, He'll enjoy it.
